  • 10 Chocolate Peanut Butter

OMG! I had never tried the Chocolate Peanut butter before and when I opened the top it smelled like heaven. I mixed it with 8oz of unsweetened almond milk and tasted delicious! I recommend this flavor. I have usually just had the chocolate and I don't like fruity flavors or vanilla, but the chocolate peanut b utter is divine.

I’ve used this product for a 6 weeks know I’m hitting it hard at the gym and eating healthy. The chocolate gold standard tastes pretty good in milk. I follow the proper diet, workout and proper sleep . but Protein powder is not helpful to me. cannot provide all the fuel (Proteins) requirements for the growth and recovery .

These flavors are excellent, i use almond milk and they mix very easily, never no clumping, i have been using this product for about 5+ years. Now i want to make a comment about the coupon that is offered currently, the 150OFF. They raised the regular price on the ON 2lb selection to offset the 15OFF coupon so you are not really getting a discount....haha...pretty sneaky and underhanded BODYBUILDING.com.

  • 10 Mocha Cappuccino

This is my first time purchasing protein from Optimum Nutrition, it was suggested by my competition prep coach, and I will absolutely be ordering it again. The protein keeps me full for a good amount of time, it's very easy to mix, smooth drinking and they have lots of flavor options. The Mocha Cappuccino is definitely my favorite with the Extreme Chocolate Milk coming in close second. I can't wait to keep on trying all of the other flavors!

  • 7 Chocolate Malt

I've always mixed my powder with water and a majority of the time, they taste good, if not great. This flavor does not fall into that category. Chocolate Malt is horrible mixed with water. I have not mixed it with milk, as I rarely use milk, but I may have to try it to see if it makes this flavor tolerable.

  • 7 Chocolate Mint
  • 10 Coffee

I remember chocolate mint tasting delicious, but i guess they changed their formula. My latest 5 pound of chocolate mint protein bucket lacked taste and sweetness. I had to add sweeteners. I could also barely taste the mint. I would not buy this flavor again. My favorite flavor is coffee. It tastes like real coffee. Regardless of flavor, the protein mixes easily with water without clumps. Never had stomach issues with any flavor.

  • 5 Extreme Milk Chocolate
  • 10 Chocolate Peanut Butter

The extreme milk chocolate flavor was okay at best. It was very very foamy which made it not taste the greatest. On the other hand the chocolate peanut butter was out of this world and I did not seem to have as much foam with it. Good product overall. Will not buy extreme chocolate again. Recommendation is to have more flavor options for 10lb bags.

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
